I used a furniture dolly. Took off everything I could then strapped the stove in. Taking it off the tacoma wasn't too bad but up the steps myself was a one step at a time deal. Then, the dolly was wider than the door too the most direct route where I needed to get the stove :mad: so i had to go round the long way. It's up on a brick (on end) high platform made of bricks and flagstones. Getting it up there was not a problem but onto the base, I needed help.

My installation contractor disassembled my wood/coal furnace and took it into the basement. My 18 year old nephew and I then carried 180 40# bags of coal from the garage to the basement. Funny how I as a 56 year old carried 120 bags down in the same time he carried 60 bags down! :D :D

Sounds like your nephew has the same "Teen" attitudes my 18 year old son has. They simply haven't learned how to work yet. :whip:

Getting it in is easier than getting it out. I would strap it to a two wheeled cart and leave it on the cart if it fits through the tailgate. Be sure to chock the wheels of the cart.

I have a Toyota minivan. I have had up to 10 sheets of 3/4" plywood in it. I have also had 800 lbs of cast iron grates in it. It has been quite the workhorse.

My boiler came on a pallet and was pallet jacked off of the trucks lift gate and into my garage. From there I pallet jacked it into place in my boiler room. Then I used a chain hoist to lift it off the pallet.

When I first bought my stove I unloaded it with a block and tackle. Then I disassebled everything that could be taken off from it. I then walked it into the house onto an upside down piece of carpet. Then I slid it until I got to the livingroom which was carpet, and walked it again until it was on the harth.

When I moved the same stove to my new home I had the movers do it for me. I did fully disasseble it for them too. :)

Anyone have a suggestion for getting a AA-130m out of a basement with only an interior staircase?

The homeowner/seller enlightened me to motorized/climbing handtrucks, but I can't find one anywhere for rental. Any suggestions where I can look, or how to make the boiler lighter? Fill it with helium? :D

Tip it over into a canoe and flood the basement. ;)

It should row right out!

A little Kubota power and a lotta help from a 6 year old! Once in the basement I used my motorcycle lift to move it into position.
